I first met Sr. Janice in Little Rock. She was a friend of a friend but she quick;y became my friend too. She had great ‘praying places’ and ‘praying music’. She introduced me to the ‘Medical Missionary Sisters whom I LOVED! ‘Father, its one of your children again asking that you would hear. I’ve only a few simple words to speak but I guess you might call it a prayer. First I want to thank you for your Son,for the beautiful things He is, for the wonderful things He’s done. It takes all my faith to understand how He who guides the stars cares to guide me by His hand.’ The words might not all be right . I was a teenager then. I went to college in Louisville, Kentucky. I was delighted to find that Sr Janice was there. My mama died in my first semester there and Janice became my rock….my anchor in weathering what became a long storm for me. She was always there for me thru thick and thin in what I now know was the most difficult part of my life. She had a dog named Scruffy who was intensely devoted to her. She loved her dog as intensely as I loved my dogs. She always had a dog who was devoted to her.. As life progressed I fell out of touch with her. I deeply regret that I ever let that happen.She is one of the most importent people in the tapestry of my life. I will always love her and I will never forget her!
I knew her as Sister Timothy Joseph ,at St Joseph School in Helen, Md. A wonderful person who loved her students..
I worked under Sister Janice at SVI Heart Station. Sister Janice shared advise and her heart with me. Rest in pease, you are loved.
I well remember Sister Janice as president of STS Mary & Elizabeth Hospital in Louisville where I worked as a Housekeeper. She was extremely friendly to the Night Shift on duty.
78 years is a lifetime of friendship. Janice and I were fortunate enough to have this friendship starting at St. Andrew’s in Roanoke, Va. in the second grade. Godspeed my friend and may the angels take you into paradise.
